Jay McClement feels like he has a lot left in the tank.

Earlier this week, McClement agreed to attend Penguins training camp on a professional tryout. "I feel like I still have a lot left in the tank," McClement, who dealt with a knee sprain last season, said. "I’ve been feeling really good this summer physically. I got my body back. With the injury, it took a while to get my body back in balance. I’ve been feeling really good. For me, it’s finding that niche with some of the things that I’ve done over my career. Hopefully that can meld into a good team." With Nick Bonino and Matt Cullen both leaving in free agency, McClement might actually have a decent chance of cracking Pittsburgh's roster.
